capitol hill. the white house is expressing putting pressure on congress. >>reporter: a report on the impact if the bush tax cuts are not extended. the study says the typical middle class family will see taxes go up by $2,200 next year affecting businesses and retailers. the argument is the families will spend less and it will hurt the economy. >> you can see it across housing, and services, and things like paying for cell phone, groceries, durable goods, auto purchases. evidence like this is a reason why retailers are so concerned that congress has not yet extended the middle-class tax cuts. >>reporter: and carney noted the president spoke with harry reid and speaker boehner over the weekend. everyone is anticipating another high profile white house meet this week on the fiscal cliff
12:03 pm
sources in congress say there is you not one on the schedule so far. >>shepard: over the weekend some republicans are telling grover norquist to take a hike with the "we won't raise taxes" pledge. >>reporter: the fine tuning is they are saying we are okay with close loopholes but they don't want to raise tax rates. the republicans are saying the survey done by a group calls the winston group, a republican research firm, says 65 percent of americans back tax reform and spending cuts over the raising of taxes. here is the senate republican leader on what the g.o.p. is offering. >> without compromising our principles we put skin in the game and recognition to the fact while democrats don't run this town, neither do we. we have been responsible even as we remain firm on this point. no tax increases now for promised spending cuts that you will not materialize later. the american people have seen
12:04 pm
that game before. they won't be fooled again. >> house republicans are planning to bring in on wednesday a number of c.e.o.'s of caterpillar, goldman sachs and all state and other key players on fiscal includes including erskine bowles co-author of the simpson-bowles and the republicans want the business community to hear their ideas and make the case a big deal should include spending cuts and reforms. >>shepard: thank you, mike, from capitol hill. grover norquist will join neil cavuto next hour and talk about breaking the anti-tax pledge by some republicans. >> the generation leader who brokered the cease-fire between israel and hamas is in a world of hurt now standing by a you positive we are grab that sparked violent protests. egyptian president morsi is trying to ease the violent backlash over his new power. here is the back story.
12:05 pm
president morsi essentially gave himself total power over egypt issuing a number of decrees including all decisions he makes are final so the judges do not have any say and another that states that no legislature and no court can overturn any law he makes. so, poof, he dictator, saying he is trying to speed up the government transition but opponents argue he has appointed himself a new dictator and egyptian health officials say violent clashes between police and the pro democracy demonstrators led to one death and hundred credits of injuries. and now to cairo, what happened with the meeting with the judges today with president morsi? >>reporter: details still coming out but this was supposed to be a dave compromise when the egyptian president reached out to opponents, some of the chief judge whose have opposed his move to put himself above the law and the courts and make a compromise on that decree,
12:06 pm
perhaps modify it. initial reports say there was no back down by the president, insteads saying he stands firm on his right to impose that decree and any laws he issues are final and above the law. really, you can hear it filter into the crowd. they are getting news of this and the anger and energy of the crowd has risen in the past hour. >>shepard: and they will not back down unless and until president morsi rescinds the decrees. >>reporter: that is right. they are looking for complete withdrawal of the decree by the president. there is a major demonstration scheduled for tomorrow. in was supposed to be competing demonstrations, with backers of the president from the muslim brotherhood called for a million man march but they are so concerned about the possibility of more blood shed on the streets here the supporters of the president have cancelled their march so we will see opponents on the street in major
12:07 pm
force tomorrow. >>shepard: we will bring in michael hand long from the brookings institution in washington, dc, an independent think tank. you just got back from turkey; that right? >>guest: that is right. >>shepard: i guess this has the potential to be his moment as a headline read from over the weekend, egypt is the largest population in the region holding the greatest sway here. they are either going to go one way or the other and that is the biggest issue. >>guest: you are right. egypt's role in the broader middle east could not be overemphasized. i am hopeful the president morsi is trying to make the right calls. i am not sure he made the right one here but the back story, even more, the courts are largely mubarak-appointees. they have been by some accounts interfering with the effort to create a new constitution.
12:08 pm
and disbanding previous groups that charged with the task. morsi is persuaded they are doing that too much and he is most concerned about seeing essentially a democratic movement to create a new constitution. and his new powers are only temporary. so we can hold him to that standard. i am holding out hope. >>shepard: and there is the issue whether he can continue with the pressure that brought together this cease-fire between the palestinians and hamas, specifically, and the israeli government. >>guest: that is right. that is why i am hopeful. he has an enormous challenge before him, however, he has seemed to want to do the responsible thing so far. there hasn't been any changing of the israel and palestinian peace treaty or demonizing of israel and saying the palestinians are all good and israel's position is entirely indefensible and he has not sounded like the iranians, for example. i am hopeful he is trying to
12:09 pm
find a middle job. but keeping weapons out of the gaza strip is a difficult proposition yet if you try to blockade the place you caught the other problem of great antagonism in the palestinian and arab movements and population. so it is a thankful and impossible task but the instinct is to navigate the middle ground. >>shepard: our government and other western nations is your sense have enough sway although hamas, it is the muslim brotherhood by another name, they are so well connected? >>guest: we have to pick and choose our battles because if we try to call every shot we are not going to have enough sway. he is the response to mubarak who we supported for three decades and that fact we got mubarak out is not enough to compensate. morrissey will have -- morsi wil
12:10 pm
have a different agenda. we do not want an oppressive sunni society and we want a peace treaty, we do not want support of terrorist movements and we can be flexible on some of the other thing i am hopeful about the relationship. >>shepard: thank you, michael hand long. there was something different about macy's thanksgiving day parade. for one thing it doesn't go up broadway because they put the weird turning lanes in there so they had to go up sixth avenue which was weird for us. weirder, a couple of people showed up to watch the event found confidential police records in the confetti including social security numbers. early holiday shopping numbers are in. they are big. we will look how the retailers are doing.

and jonathan hunt is live with us in manhattan. this is embarrassing. >>jonathan: certainly is. imagine standing there as a parade goer you see the confetti falling and you pick up one piece and it appears to have a social security number on it and as they looked at more and more and more they found more and more personal information. >> this was a number, and "ssn" and we thought it was just one in a million and we picked up a handful off the ground and we started looking through them and found more and more. >>jonathan: the problem is that the papers were shredded the wrongay, so a lot of this information was easy to read. >>shepard: what do the cops say? than the police department has admitted this is stuff stuff
12:16 pm
putting identity a statement that reads "the police department is very concerned about this situation. we will be conducting an investigation into this matter as well as reviewing our procedures for the disposing of sensitive document." macy's organizes the parade they say, that wasn't our confetti we used commercially made stuff and they said in part in their statement, all parade participants leave all personal effects behind when they change in their costumes and all clown costumes come with a bag of small commercial multicolored confetti, which is safe to use and light to carry. so the macy's clowns are innocent and the clowns among the nassau police department are less so. >>shepard: and all clowns scary. the supreme court allowing a christian college to continue their fight against president obama's signature health care law.
12:17 pm
virginia-based liberty university, challenged the requirement that large employers provide health care coverage to workers and claims that forcing schools particularly that school, to cover workers' birth control violates their religious principles and challenges the so-called individual mandate which requires everyone to get insurance by 2014 or pay a penalty. last year, a federal appeals court threw out the university case ruling it didn't have jurisdiction. but, today, the supreme court cleared the way for the lawsuit to proceed in a lower court. the high court upheld the individual mandate in 5-4 vote. >> after the war in afghanistan is officially and finally over, the united states could keep thousands of troops. the plan for the "after the draw down" next. on the day caylee anthony disappeared someone went to look on the intent to look for specifics on suffocation. they missed it. the prosecution has egg all over their face and people all over the nation are asking, can we

12:20 pm
12:21 pm
>>shepard: you thought our military might get out of afghanistan? our presence could continue after the combat missions end. a top, or a series of top officials say an option under consideration called for 10,000 students to stay behind beyond 2014 when afghan forces will take over security. that is in direct contrast from withdrawal of iraq partly because they could be reconditioned to stay but doing it different in afghanistan will involve many of the same obstacles. and now jennifer, what are the
12:22 pm
military leaders saying? >>reporter: most defense officials assume there will be one more fighting season next year in afghanistan going in the spring and going through next fall. general allen the top u.s. commander in afghanistan reportedly wants to keep 60,000 troops through the fighting season, most of the troops who are already there. there are indications that he will recommend that the united states also keep 0,000 troops after 2014 including 1,000 special operators to keep a lid on things. this is how defense secretary panetta recently described his vision. >> afghans will be in the lead throughout the country on security until 2013 and africans will take full responsibility for security by the end of 2014. >>reporter: the final decision is up to president obama and defense secretary panetta will speak with general allen about
12:23 pm
what they will recommend to the president. >>shepard: after that, we have to know what the afghans want, right? >>reporter: that is right. a key point is that the state department has just started negotiating status of forces agreement, what we remember as the sofa agreement that was the sticking point in iraq when the pentagon wanted to keep u.s. forces behind and they could not come up with a deal for soldiers and troops left behind so the united states pulled out come completely. a reason the united states wants to keep 10,000 troops in administration has to do with the fact the afghans do not have a functioning airport although the united states has spent hundreds of millions to build one, you can also expect that u.s. forces will stay until april 2014 when afghanistan will have the next presidential election and karzai most likely will be replaced by another president because

constitutionally he cannot stay on. >>shepard: thank you, jennifer. in case you were not fully aware the casey anthony trial was a complete debacle now we have proof. a bombshell discovery that may have meant a very different outcome in the case. investigators say someone in the casey anthony household did indeed google "foolproof suffocation method." foolproof. the very day the 2-year-old casey anthony disappeared, fool roof suffocation. cops overlooked that piece of evidence. they just didn't notice it on the computer. they cannot say for sure who was using the computer at the time we they say they logged on to her myspace page. first they search for "suffocate fully" and then they logged on
12:25 pm
to her my space page. she was acquitted last year and the dense team argued they helped her father cover up the drowning death in the pool and casey anthony has been living in hiding since. and phil keating covered this disgusting affair and officials in florida which is the orlando metropolitan area say, well, we should have looked there, i get, we should have looked on the computer for full suffocation. phil: that doesn't mean the claim it was a mistake but one person who does not buy this is the former lead attorney but we are talking about the orange county sheriff which so famously never thoroughly searched those woods that everyone just a quarter of a mile from the anthony home for a full six months when the bones of little caylee were found. the judge thought the google search was intentionally buried because it contradicted the
12:26 pm
state's entire story line. >> you cannot have your cake and eat it two. she is at home on the computer or she left at 12:50. it create as new amount of doubt that george anthony and casey anthony were home when she died. >> it was the father who told police and claimed on the stand that he saw casey leave the house at 12:50 with caylee still alive on that day but this search on the internet happened a full hour after that. >>shepard: this could have changed everything including the state's attorney line. phil: that is debated whether it could have changed the highly controversial not guilty verdict which of course came july 5th, 2011, after ten hours of deliberating. after that, before the jury went into hiding many times for their own safety, some said that, remember, they were faced during deliberations with as were
12:27 pm
evidence that little caylee accidentally drowned as she was actually killed. and if this foot proof search been entered as most of the other internet searches that were at trial, the prosecution would have claimed this was done by casey and her lawyer would have claimedded it was done by george, however, in reaction to this new discovery that is being reported in orlando the prosecution says, now, they wished any had known about this at trial and the sheriff now believes when you have a case of this magnitude perhaps they will reach out to the f.b.i. next time for cyber assistance. >>shepard: a jetblue flight has new been forced to land after it hit a bird after take off coming in the last few minutes, with a video we have. mechanics check out the plane for damage. it was headed from 40 lauderdale to puerto rico and officials say the bird hit a engine and turned
